Qualcomm Atheros Debuts Industrial-Grade HomePlug Green PHY Device

Oct 15, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI) announced that its networking and connectivity subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., said it is unveiling the industry's first industrial-grade HomePlug Green PHY (HPGP) device, the QCA7000-AL3B.


According to a release, this latest product is one of the foundations in Qualcomm Atheros' expanding HomePlug Green PHY ecosystem of products and partner module companies supporting utilities, OEMs and other smart home and smart grid product designs.

The Company said the QCA7000-AL3B is both hardware and software compatible, the company said, with the previously launched QCA7000 and brings full industrial temperature support to the product line, serving outdoor applications, such as electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE), electric meters and solar panels. The QCA7000-AL3B is available in the market's smallest form factor (8x8 quad-flat no-leads package) and includes all the previously announced QCA7000 features; it is an extremely low power, fully integrated single chip solution delivered with advanced software and hardware support packages.

"The QCA7000-AL3B adds to our expanding portfolio of low-energy, standards-based communication solutions designed to connect the Internet of Everything," said Adam Lapede, senior director of product management at Qualcomm Atheros. "Qualcomm Atheros continues to build its broad portfolio of HomePlug Green PHY solutions that enable an ecosystem of ultra-low power, PLC-connected devices, which address unique environmental requirements, like the QCA7000 does for outdoor applications."
